Silverfin but still a great series, this is the last of the Higson written Young Bond, I hope Steve Cole who writes the rest is as good. This series so far has been every bit as good as Alex Rider or Jason Steed. Apr 12, Benjamin Clow rated it it was amazing Charlie Higsons By Royal Command is not only a master-class of a James Bond novel, but also a perfect example of how Young Adult fiction can be both emotionally mature as well as beautiful literature. I first read this book when I was 11 years old, when I was moving schools and towns, and I remember it having such a powerful impact on me.
